古宮 Go Gung Korean BBQ Coquitlam in Westwood Plateau is one of my favorite Korean restaurants. This Korean restaurant is one of the cleanest. The interior space is bright and open with water wheel fountain and stonewall dividers. Service is friendly and prompt. The drive is a little far for you Vancouverites. It is even a bit of a trek for me up the mountain in Coquitlam.
More importantly, it has one of the best meat quality. Although prices are above average, you get what you pay for. The grills are not typical Korean barbecue grill pan. Go Gung uses open grill. This is better because the oil will not burn on the plate with you meat on top.
Korean Seafood Pancake | Haemul Pajeon: Traditional veggie and seafood pancake with morsels of squid, octopus, shrimp. Mixed with a little batter, some scallions and a little dipping sauce and you have yourself a Korean pizza. Served on a hot pan. The sauce is sweet with a hint of spiciness. The dish is filling and good for any hungry party.
Soft Tofu Soup | Soondooboo: is a hot and spicy Korean stew made with tofu, veggies, mushrooms, onions, scallions and chili power. A soft poached egg. This soup is perfect for cold nights and is true comfort food.
Korean sides | banchan: everyday it is different. But typically it consists of sweet potatoes, kimchi, seaweed, and bean sprouts. My favorite side dish at Go Gong is their potato salad. It is slightly sweet. I can never get enough.
Zakkushi Charcoal Grill Vancouver is one of my favorite places for meat sticks and Asahi black. With three locations in Vancouver (Main, Denman, Kitsilano) there is always one nearby. The space is more spacious and offers individual booths. Parking is terrible at the Main […]

Suh Jjok Na Ra Westender Korean Cafe Vancouver Denman Street serves one thing only – BBQ pork belly “sam gyeop sal”. There is no menu, so you don’t need to waste time to fuss over a menu to find the best thing available. What you need to do is tell your server how many portions you’d like and that’s it.
Westender Korean Cafe menu is $10.95/portion and comes with lettuce, green onion and lettuce vinaigrette (add into your lettuce wrap) and the usual sides (ban chans) – bean sprouts, kimchi, daikon, etc.
Westender Korean Cafe Vancouver has been around for eons and is bit of a hole in the wall. The picture in front of the restaurant is a bit misleading from what you see inside. Chug down a few beers and I bet you can’t even tell.

Sometimes little things makes me really happy. Take for example my discovery of Seok Gi Si Dae Korean BBQ Restaurant 석기시대 in Coquitlam. I’m excited because it closely resembles joints I’ve been to in South Korea. Seok Gi Si Dae Korean […]
